Our cool modern bar counter design ideas will make you want to host house parties every weekend!

If there is one element that can take your home’s glam quotient up several notches, it is a home bar. Gone are those days of the ’90s, when bar cabinets used to be bulky pieces of furniture that would take up sizable floor space without adding any hint of style. With better internet access to interior design resources, homeowners are now looking for much more space-saving, stylish options with multi-purpose storage. That’s why we have curated a range of modern bar counter designs for homes that are functional and modern, where you and your guests can enjoy a glass of Chardonnay right at home.

Modern Bar Counter Design For The Balcony

Chill with your friends or soak up the last sun rays during sunset, balcony bars are trending among millennials these days. But being a small space, balcony bar counters demand innovative storage options. Keeping that in mind, we have given the traditional bar design a twist. The best thing about this piece is you can customise it with various colours, finishes, and textures. What’s more, we have multi-purposed our modular shoe rack as additional seating.

Sleek Modern Mini Bar Counter Designs For Your Home

An expensive alcohol collection often needs to be stored away from sunlight for it to age well.

The sleek, seamless design of this bar counter is enough to make your guests envy you. It also doubles as extra storage.
